About DBK

The Data Catalogue DBK holds study descriptions of all studies that are long-term archived at the Data Archive. You can search for studies and download or order data for secondary analysis.

The software DBKEdit for maintenance and DBKSearch for research in these holdings was developed by the GESIS Data Archive to make this service available. DBKEdit und DBKSearch are distributed as DBKfree to be used by others. Thus, interested users are able to describe their own catalogues on the basis of that and publish them on the web. This program is free software: you can redistribute it and/or modify it under the terms of the GNU General Public License as published by the Free Software Foundation. Currently, DBKfree is available in version 2.0. For more informationen see DBKfree.
